Farmers & the Soybean Supply

Today’s U.S. soybean farmers grow more crops on fewer acres with fewer inputs than ever before.

The United Soybean Board (USB) and soy checkoff, along with other farmer-led U.S. soy organizations, including the American Soybean Association (ASA), U.S. Soybean Export Council (USSEC) and several state soybean checkoff boards, continue efforts to demonstrate U.S. soy’s outstanding sustainability track record to customers.

U.S. soybean production is based on a national system of sustainability and conservation laws and regulations combined with careful implementation of best production practices by the nation’s 279,110 soybean producers. In addition, U.S. soybean producers participate in numerous certified and audited voluntary sustainability and conservation programs.
